Initial Training
SIMCOM’s Westwind initial courses provide a comprehensive overview of aircraft systems, performance, and procedures. You will have the opportunity to gain knowledge and proficiency in normal and emergency procedures. The combination of our, high fidelity simulators, small class sizes and experienced instructors provides the ideal learning environment. Upon successful completion of the course you will receive an IA-JET type rating (PIC or SIC as appropriate) along with instrument proficiency, takeoff and landing currency and a 61.58 proficiency check.

Recurrent Training
SIMCOM’s Westwind recurrent courses give you the opportunity to practice normal and emergency procedures using realistic scenario based training. You will also review aircraft systems, performance and procedures. Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive an IA-JET 61.58 proficiency check, along with instrument proficiency and takeoff and landing currency.

Upgrade Training
SIMCOM’s Westwind upgrade course is designed for the experienced second in command to obtain a type rating in the airplane in fewer hours than an initial course. Like the initial course you will receive systems training and simulator training but with reduced hours reflecting your experience in the airplane. In addition to a type rating you will also satisfy instrument proficiency, and takeoff and landing currency requirements.

Airline Transport Pilot (ATP)
Pilots that hold a Commercial pilot certificate can obtain an ATP rating by completion of an initial or upgrade course.
